Answer Question

Find a research based journal article from a reputable social science or criminal justice publication and provide a synopsis of it here. You may choose either quantitative or qualitative inquiry based studies. There are many journals out there from which you can choose. Here are a couple you can use:

1. What technique was used to select subjects?2. Are there independent and dependent variables?

3. Was this qualitative or quantitative inquiry?

4. Anything else of interest about the research.

Additionally, discuss whether or not the research was pertinent and necessary. Was it timely? Could it have been improved? How will it inform the public and/or public policy?

In this assignment you need to be SURE the research article is qualitative or quantitative. I think many of you will again find informational articles and be a bit confused by that.

If the article is providing data, but not a research hypothesis or research questions, then it is not a research study. We now need to focus on what a research study is.

The point of this discussion is to FIND a RESEARCH STUDY. Not just an article that provides information. Do some research, folks. FIND a true research study. If you find an informational article and want to post it, that’s all right, but remember it will not meet the requirements of this discussion board.

Prewriting–Freewrite on a Spring Break Memory

Freewriting is one type of prewriting that helps many students get their thoughts down on paper. Hacker states that “freewriting is simply nonstop writing.  You set aside ten minutes or so and write whatever comes to you, without pausing to think about word choice, spelling, or even meaning.” Anker discusses Freewriting on p.52. For this week’s Discussion Board post, I want you to freewrite on the topic–Spring Break Memories. Post your Spring Break Memory  freewrite here before midnight on Sunday, March 20. This DB post, like all DB posts this term, is worth 10 points.

    Spring Break Memory

      After reading this week’s reading assignments and completing your Spring Break memory freewriting, write a 
    narrative paragraph (8-10 sentences) about one specific Spring Break memory.  This should not be the same thing you posted on the DB.  The DB post should be freewriting on any Spring Break memories that came to your mind while you were freewriting. When freewriting, you shouldn’t worry about spelling, grammar, or organization. This paragraph, on the other hand, should be a well-organized narrative paragraph that you have polished and proofread.  In this narrative, you will describe one specific Spring Break memory. It does not have to be the same memory you freewrote about. Like all narratives, your paragraph should tell a story. You could write about any experience that you’ve had during any Spring Break memory (recent or from your childhood). You may want to skim through chapters 5-8 in Anker if you have little or no paragraph writing experience.  This paragraph, like all writing assignments this term, will be submitted in Assignments and will be worth 100 points. Click on the underlined heading of these directions to submit this paragraph as an attached file. Make sure your saved file has a .doc, .docx, or .rtf extension.  Read the how-to documents posted under Course Documents on formatting paragraphs, saving files, and submitting work. Also, make sure your paragraph is your own work; do not use any outside sources. Due: before midnight on Sunday, 3/20.

Complete Discussion Response to Classmate Visual Arts Course


I choose Vincent van Gogh’s The Starry Night, 1889, as the artwork that has meaning for me.  I actually searched the textbook, hoping to find it for this discussion.  It has always been one of my favorites.  It can be found in Chapter 21, fig. 21.30 on page 385. I look forward to learning more about this particular artist.  

The Starry Night seems to be a representation of Art in Worship as described in Chapter 2, using imagery that shows a cathedral with an extremely tall narrow steeple that rises over the rest of the town.  As a central focus it acts as an indicator of the spiritual structure of the painting.  The way it reaches towards the stars mimics the raised hands of a worshiper.  Though there is a darker feeling in parts of the painting, the overall effect is there are beginnings and ending to all good things, the end of the physical and the beginning of eternal.

Thomas Aquinas believed that art is beneficial in encouraging religion; showing the differences between the material world and spiritual reality.  This belief continued to be influential in the construction of future cathedrals in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries.  

Having the opportunity to view this piece in person versus a picture or replication is akin to looking through a telescope versus traveling through the stars.  It would be hard to appreciate the colors and texture, those things that would speak to my own thoughts of my religious/ spiritual path.

As I was viewing this piece, it occurred to me that the windows of the church are very dark in comparison to the windows around the town.  Are there any opinions on the reason and what it says to the person enjoying the art?
